the energy he brings. i like a lot of things he is saying. he's smart, truly understands what is going on with the budgets and everything else. i think he is strongly in favor -- i know for a fact he is going to save medicare he is going to sahe other side is goio destroy it. knott not with big deductions medicare cannot exist with the other side in office: it will explode. $716 billion -- >> it was taken out of medicare. >> here's what i think you would do if you were debating president obama. i believe he is arrogant. i don't think he has ever taken a punch in his life. the biggest deal you and i talked about this before is tony rest tone the convicted felon had the biggest deal he did before he became president. >> if romney and ryan go into these debates and punch, i don't think -- i would like to see if this president is able to take a punch in a debate. >> i will say this. >> by the way rhetorical. >> they will accuse me of this. >> what will they call me? >> who knows. >> mitt romney had the best political week of his life in florida. he went down he was doing poorly. he had to

now things are just as bad when he started. romney worked in the debate seems like i have energy and ideas the president didn't. jenna: republican strategist mike murphy on. brad woodhouse, democratic national committee. sean spicer republican national committee. they're both campaign communications director. they're made for television. you're shaking your head. why? >> i think it was the joran van der sloot comment? jenna: was that it, brad? joran van der sloot, story? >> i was shaking my head. this notion that the president doesn't want to be reelected is craziest thing i ever heard of. in the analysis, it is funny, not worth to put on paper, if you did i wouldn't use it to wrap fish. it wouldn't be worthy of that. earlier this summer when mitt romney was off the campaign trail for exhaustion. the president was putting in 19 hour days. >> a lot of fund raisers. >> this guy, you know, this guy, is committed to this. he has got the fire in the belly. he is exhibited that every day he has been in office. look, one debate is not going to the determine the outcome of this election.

to see the energy and emotion that you're showing, the concern, because -- >> i really doesn't have that sort of passion, but he has -- >> sean: i think he does. >> i agree with you, what he did, it wasn't so much passion as he responded to attacks when he was in that florida primary debate with newt gingrich. he did make strong responses. i think just allowing the american people to see mitt romney unfiltered, without the paraphrasal of the media is going to be him a world of good, i'd say on his poll numbers, but i think those are a lie. >> you'll agree he's passionate about mercka and entrepreneurship. he'll get animated when he talks about that. >> sean: that was the debate where he said i won't apologize for my success. >> he does need to hit back. >> sean: if you were giving him final advice, what do you tell him? >> florida debate. memorize how you behaved in that debate, because i think his tendency is to be too gracious, too much of a gentleman. that was his problem in 2008. the narrative is he's been too gracious, saying obama is a nice guy. that's what he's saying. >> i t
